TOMMY GREET KISS ARMY AT COFFEEHOUSE

Even a hurricane couldn't keep the KISS ARMY from attending the KISS Coffeehouse Party today in Myrtle Beach! Over a thousand KISS fans from as far away as Japan, Canada and all over the US, braved Friday's extreme weather to meet Tommy Thayer and celebrate the Coffeehouse's 2nd Anniversary...and Tommy didn't disappoint, signing autographs and posing for photos for over three hours. Tommy really seemed to be having a great time meeting his fans and signed multiple autographs for all who asked! A real class act!

FAN'S ERIC CARR STATUE
KISSONLINE.com
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER

Hi KISS ARMY,

I am a KISS fan from Sydney, Australia and I thought I'd share a photo of a custom made Eric Carr statue that I recently created. I based this on the Creatures Of The Night outfit which was by far an absolutely incredible era.

It is made out of resin, is approximately 55 cm tall and took me approximately a month to make in order to get all the details precise or close to perfect as possible.

Eric Carr has been an inspiration of mine for years, his positive outlook and determination in life has influenced me in many ways. He was an amazing musician, extremely talented who elevated KISS to great heights. He is sorely missed but will never be forgotten.

Thanks, Peter Kaperonis

CONTEST WINNER TO SING SATURDAY
MYRTLE BEACH SUN NEWS
N.C. MAN TO 'SING WITH KISS'

Contest winner to duet Saturday in MB with with Tommy Thayer

Brian Galvin, the franchisee of the KISS Coffeehouse at Broadway at the Beach, invites Grand Strand residents to enter its 'Sing with KISS' contest. The winner will sing 'Forever' with KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer at the KISS Coffeehouse's daylong second-anniversary party Sept. 6. A North Carolinian will the KISS song 'Forever' on Saturday in Myrtle Beach with the group's lead guitarist, Tommy Thayer.

Todd Cage of Huntersville, north of Charlotte, was among more than 600 people who left a sing-along voice mail to enter the 'Sing with KISS'' contest, said Brian Galvin, president of the Galvin Group, franchisee of the KISS Coffeehouse at Broadway at the Beach.

The contest winner's performance is part of a slew of activities scheduled for the coffeehouse's second anniversary party, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday. Details at 626-5477 or www.kisscoffeehouse.com

Galvin said Cage, after learning this morning that Thayer had chosen his name as the best singer of the first verse and chorus to an instrumental recording of 'Forever,' was shocked and thrilled with the news.

Cage said he had called in his entry from his car last month on a break from work in the service department of a car dealership.

He said he plans to crank a KISS greatest-hits CD to practice 'Forever.'

'I used to play that song with my band when I was 16 in high school,'' said Gage, 34.

KISS co-founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were on hand in 2006 when the KISS Cofffeehouse opened, and original KISS lead guitarist Ace Frehley paid a visit there earlier this year.

THE PRESS DEMOCRAT
ROCK FAITHFUL AT KONOCTI

By JOHN BECK

Proving his lifelong devotion to KISS, Don Warneke pulled up his sleeve to show off his badge of honor: A red 'KISS Army' tattoo on his arm.

But it paled in comparison with the foot-long portrait of Gene Simmons on his left calf.

'Other than the Grateful Dead, there is no other fan base like the KISS fan base,' he said, waiting along with other fans (who paid between $150 and $214 for tickets) Sunday night for his white-faced icons of stadium rock to take the stage at Konocti Harbor.

It didn't matter that only two of the four founding members -- Simmons and Paul Stanley -- were still around for the 35th...
